Giveaways Day 15 – Clek Oobr Booster Seat

When we first opened Magic Beans 6 years ago we had a 2 year old and an infant and the bulk of our expertise was in the realm of baby and toddler products.

At Toy Fair, the nice people hawking the Bubble Thing pressed one into my palm during the final moments of the show and told me to take it home and try it out. So I did, and then we were hooked. Blowing giant bubbles is wondrous and fun and it’s one ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 11 – Bumbleride Indie Twin

When we first opened the store, Bumbleride was part of our stroller mix. We loved the fresh colors and patterns and the reasonable prices. As time went on, our stroller department got crowded, and for one reason or another, the Bumblerides didn’t make the cut. We’ve kept a close eye on the company over the years, always stopping to say ... Read More »
